I have been asked for a solution to a problem, and the best I can come up with involves using PP load balancing - The kit I have tried looking at no longer seems to have the option to force it - is it still there?

I would need to do it on a box that will take gig in, and balance across 8 (or more) 100M ethernets. We need huge bandwidth, and have a single device at each end, so conventional etherchannels are no use - single mac & IP at each end.

Definitely available are 6500 with SUP720, 3750 and we would buy if we needed to (eg 7200s).

I do know about the risks of out of sequence packets, but my contact thinks his application will be OK (yeah, right!)
